For the third straight year, Titusville was chosen by the North American Police Work Dog Association, N.A.P.W.D.A, to be the host agency for their Statewide Annual Training Conference.

Sixty K-9 teams from throughout the State of Florida, and a team from Georgia and the Country of Austria, conducted training for certifications in Obedience, Tracking, Narcotic Detection, Explosives Detection, Cadaver Searches, Area & Building Searches, and Obedience Control.

Titusville is fortunate to have a certified Master Police Dog Trainer on staff. Detective Jan Scofield has over thirty years experience as a police K-9 trainer. Also on the conference training staff, Dr. Stephen MacKenzie, a court recognized expert in the behavior of police K-9s and author of three books on Police dogs.

“We are extremely proud to be selected to host this prestigious training for the third year in a row”, said Titusville Police Chief Anthony Bollinger. “Our agency being chosen so often speaks volumes about how dedicated our staff is here to advanced training”, Bollinger added.

All four Titusville Police K-9 teams participated in the training and achieved multiple certifications, including FDLE’s State Certification. The training is held at multiple locations throughout Titusville for one week.
